I have finally finished my Tunic and it is a slam dunk! I'm wearing it with my leggings I made a while back, which I still love too.... Here are the stats:
Pattern Description: Misses Tunics D has self-faced middle section, gathering, and close-fitting upper front.
Pattern Sizing: Lg-XLg. I made the large, but could have gone down a size to the medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes – maybe better!
Were the instructions easy to follow? As everyone before me has already stated, the format led much to be desired. The instructions are super simple, but instead of duplicating sections for each top variation, the pattern continually says “See Section….”. They used this extra space to put drawings of two women that suggest adding “sparkles and beads to make the top different”. Skip the cutsie stuff and the bare bones of the pattern directions are perfect on their own.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I had a bit of trouble using my serger and had to re-cut the top and back section. Second time around, I used my Bernina for the entire thing and then serged the seams after the fact.
Fabric Used: A poly/Lycra knit from Gorgeous Fabrics. “It’s called Red Bull's Eye - Red/White/Black”. Because I had to re-cut some of the pieces, I used almost all of the 2 yards.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Nothing.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. Actually, my roommate is going to make one two!
Conclusion: After the initial pause, this turned out to be a quick and easy pattern that has a sexy meets comfortable feel. A winner for sure.
